  • Fish: Moray Eel

Add six months to that for Southern Hemisphere players. No need to worry about the time of day, because the Moray Eel is available all day long.

Regardless of your location, you will likely catch dozens of Ribbon Eels before you see one of these. This fish is more of a collector’s item you want to go out and look for if you need it to complete your Critterpedia. It’s not very valuable like other fish such as the Golden Trout, with a selling price of only 2,000 Bells.

Now you know when, where, and how to catch a Moray Eel. We recommend heading to your coastline and breaking out the fishing line there. Be patient, and you should have one in no time, as long as you’re in the right month. For other guides, check out our fish prices and locations for an idea of what fish you can catch this month.
